Harry Kane's flight to Germany 'cancelled' amid conflicting Bayern Munich transfer reports
| Last updated
Harry Kane's Bayern Munich transfer could be facing another potential problem, with claims that his flight has been "cancelled"
Bayern had an offer of £86.4 million accepted on Thursday and Kane was then given the green light to travel to Munich to undergo his medical and sign a four-year contract.
That information came about on Friday morning, but it then emerged that Spurs revoked permission and were attempting to make last-minute changes to the deal.
Kane was on his way to Stansted Airport and had to head back to a family home to await the green light.
Full permission was seemingly then granted but the saga continues to rumble on. German outlet BILD, who have been across the deal, say that Kane was slated to take off at 7.45am UK time on a Cessna 560XL Citation XLS+, with the registration 'D-CAWO'.
Oberpfaffenhofen airport, just outside of Munich, is the destination for the private jet. The newspaper claim Spurs delayed the flight until 12.15pm, meaning a landing time of 2pm.
However, a separate report from journalist Maximilian Koch of Abendzeitung states that there are no flights from London to Oberpfaffenhofen planned for the rest of the day.
Update #Kane: Vom Flughafen Oberpfaffenhofen, wo sonst die Neuzugänge des @FCBayern landen, heißt es auf Nachfrage, dass heute gar kein Flug aus London angemeldet war - und es ist Stand jetzt auch keiner geplant für den Rest des Tages. #FCBayern #coys @Abendzeitung— Maximilian Koch (@_kochmaximilian) August 11, 2023
And to make matters even more confusing, flight tracker FlightRadar24 shows the scheduled flight in question has actually been cancelled.
While there's still optimism that Kane will become a Bayern player and take the No.9 shirt, the delay might just deny him the chance to immediately win a trophy with the Bavarians.
It's unlikely he'll be registered in time to play against RB Leipzig in the DFL Supercup on Saturday.
Kane, who is in the final year of his Spurs contract, is set to earn more than double his current Spurs salary at Bayern.
One man who's desperate to see him get on that plane is Premier League record goalscorer Alan Shearer.
He took to Twitter to share a photoshopped image of him as a pilot, with the caption, "Come on Harry it’s time to go!".
